Bottle from Moonspin. Deep amber pour with a bubbly tan head. Nutty, toffee and roasted aroma with light floral components. Flavor is similar with a dry nutty finish. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Trade with drowland - thanks! Pours a hazy dark orange with a sticky khaki colored head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has a soapy tint to it, a touch of smelly feet. Flavor is a tad better than the aroma with some orange marmalade notes, some caramel, a touch of booziness, a yeasty finish. thick enough mouthfeel. Needs some work.

Draft. Aroma is a sweet yeast with some Carmel malt. Appearance is a dark brown with some lacing. Taste is almost of a dark esb. Some sweetness is in there as well. Palate is pretty mild. Overall, a good beer. Would buy again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A gift from a friend in AZ.
Poured into a pint glass being dark amber brown with a one inch tan head that laced nicely down the glass during consumption.
Strong malty sweetness of caramel & very light booze.
Definite dark fruity roasted toffee yet a dry finish of hops. Like the bitter end of this beverage. Balanced very well.
Overall this is a better than average English style pub beer. Would easily consume again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark in color with a small light head. Pretty much smells like it tastes, sweet with hints of toffee and caramel corn. A bit too sweet for my tastes, but I wouldn’t say it’s a bad beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
AFter an Arizona trip filled with pale ales and IPAs and the standard brewery beers, this English Strong is quite a palate-attacking change. A sweet toffee and butterscotch aroma, with a brown color. This is sweet and toffee sticky and a tad lactic/milky. An okay beer, but perhaps would score higher if I hadn’t had so many hops already in my system. Quite a bit of butterscotch though. But there’s also some hops at the w2ay end of this. Really hard to get a handle on this beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Dark roasty malt. A little caramel, but mostly just malt.
Appearance: Dark, translucent rust body, sparse off-white head.
Taste: All roasty, semi-sweet malt, and a little bit of caramel again.
Palate: You don’t taste the 8.2% alcohol. At all. Short finish. Mild sweetness, mild bitterness.
Overall: Great beer. Watch out! It will creep up on you and mess you up. Drinks easy, nice and malty, but dangerous haha.
